BA review #800!
12oz Bottle - big thanks to iguenard for this one
Appearance – Clear copper colour with an average size fizzy and frothy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation visible and there is a good amount of lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, grapefruit/oranges, peaches, pineapples
Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and it feels slightly thick on the tongue. I can taste malts, caramel, and lots of hops. It also has lots of fruit flavours going on, pineapple, tangerines, grapefruit and some peaches. I can also pick up on the booze a little bit, and it provides a nice warming feeling as it goes down. It finishes with a sweet tropical fruit aftertaste with a long lingering hop bitterness.
Overall – I know my bottle isn't the freshest, but I still thought this was an incredible beer. Either it really held up well, or the fresh stuff is going to blow my mind. Definitely one of the best beers I've had the pleasure of drinking.
